Chastain 19th at Fontana

Ross Chastain scored a 19th-place finish in Saturday’s 300 Xfinity Series race at Auto Club Speedway.

Chastain produced one of his best performances of the young season, trading positions in the lead pack in the first half of the race and running as high as 11th. On several occasions, he made daring passes jousting with the top group.

“Just a great car and a great run today,” Chastain said. “It was fun running around with the front cars and getting in some fast laps up there. We can build on this.”

Chastain drove the Shakey’s Pizza/K1 Speed Chevrolet.

He remained 16th in Xfinity Series driver points.
